Argues that expectations for mothering include a new core principle of “body work.” The requirements of “good” motherhood used to primarily involve the care of children, but now contemporary mothers are also pressured to become bikini-ready immediately postpartum. Lynn O’Brien Hallstein analyzes celebrity mom profiles to determine the various ways that they encourage all mothers to engage in body work as the energizing solution to solve any work-life balance struggles they might experience. Bikini-Ready Moms also considers the ways that maternal body work erases any evidence of mothers’ contributions both at home and in professional contexts. Hallstein theorizes possible ways to fuel a necessary mothers’ revolution, while also pointing to initial strategies of resistance. “Bikini-Ready Moms contributes a great deal to understanding both the obsession with celebrity mom profiles and the pressure that mothers are under to conform to and perform intensive mothering as it shifts into another gear to control women.” — Fiona Joy Green, author of Practicing Feminist Mothering

A resounding testament to individuality and the power of family in all forms from the young man who “lit up the Internet” (Ellen DeGeneres) On January 31, 2011, Zach Wahls addressed the Iowa House Judiciary Committee in a public forum regarding full marriage equality. The nineteen-year-old son of a same-sex couple, Wahls proudly proclaimed, “The sexual orientation of my parents has had zero effect on the content of my character.” Hours later, his speech was posted on YouTube, where it went viral, quickly receiving more than two million views. By the end of the week, everyone knew his name and wanted to hear more from the boy with two moms. Same-sex marriage will be a major—possibly the defining—issue in this year’s election cycle, and Wahls speaks to that, but also to a broader issue. Sure, he’s handsome and athletic, an environmental engineering student, and an Eagle Scout. Yet, growing up with two moms, he knows what it’s like to feel different and to fear being made fun of or worse. In the inspirational spirit of It Gets Better edited by Dan Savage and Terry Miller, My Two Moms also delivers a reassuring message to same-sex couples, their kids, and anyone who’s ever felt like an outsider: “You are not alone.”

You've been reading everything in sight about what to expect as a new mom --"Should I breastfeed or use formula?"; "Do we vaccinate right away?"; "Oh God, is eating the placenta a thing now?" But what you've been desperately looking for is a guide that tells you what to do to help your partner figure out fatherhood because he's kinda driving you crazy and you need more help. Sure, there are a few books out there by dads, to dads. But you and I both know that dude you had a baby with is not the best at sharing his feelings and seeking help, let alone telling you he's freaked out about fatherhood. Enter The New Mom's Guide to New Dads. Get enlightening, humorous-yet-useful insight into what guys are anxious about and what moms can do to maximize their partner's fatherhood potential. Flat out, more dads need to step up (and when they do, they'll realize how amazing it is to be an involved parent). Andrew Shaw, a father of three young children and an award-winning parenting columnist, is shining a light on what is often holding guys back from being the kind of dad you can shamelessly brag about to friends, as well as help you feel less stress. "If the new father in your life is a mystery in flannel, this book is your answer." Clint Edwards- Bestselling author of "I'm Sorry... Love, Your Husband" and "Silence is a Scary Sound." "Why are dads-to-be so nervous? New moms are so excited to be parents, but for dads it's a mixed bag. These days a lot of dads want to step up and be involved parents, but they still face the same old fears and low expectations dads always have. Luckily, Andrew Shaw has a book "The New Mom's Guide to New Dads," full of humor and tips to help them understand what their partners are going through." Doug Moe- Author, "Man Vs Child" - one of "Amazon's Best Humor Books" "It's a great breakdown for women of what moms can expect from their husbands during the new baby process."
